Toyota revealed that it planned to field two TS030 HYBRIDs at in the final WEC round on November 30 ahead of last weekend's Shanghai round, on the proviso that both cars came through the event without major issue.

The suspension problem that put the #8 entry of Anthony Davidson, Sebastien Buemi and Stephane Sarrazin out at Shanghai has not proved to be an obstacle to the car's participation at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Kazuki Nakajima, who missed Shanghai because he was on Super Formula duty in Japan, returns to the #7 car alongside Nicolas Lapierre and Alex Wurz.

The decision to make two entries at Shanghai and Bahrain was made at the Fuji WEC round in October, an event at which high-ranking Toyota officials were present.
